Last year, Boom! launched a new comic book about a teen detective-in-training called Goldie Vance, by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams. A four issue series, it was successful enough to become an ongoing series, co-written with Jackie Ball and Noah Hayes moving onto the art duties.

New Story Begins Here! The Crossed Palms is all aflutter when the biggest rock band in America comes to St. Pascal. But with the big band comes a big mystery, and Goldie is on the case!
So what's to happen? Well, like SEX from Joe Casey and Piotr Kowalski, published by Image Comiss, the series is moving to serialised graphic novel format instead. The story would have been in issue #13-16 will be told in the fourth graphic novel without being serialised in individual issues first – and will then be followed by the fifth and sixth.
Is this a bit of a trend beginning?
